      Stupid obnoxious alcoholic beyotch who lives across the street and shoots her mouth off at will about what I should do, how I should do it, how much better hers is than mine, how much better her kids school is than my kid's school, etc. etc. Got pwned.

      After running off all of her's and her husbands best friends with her big f*king mouth, hubby served her ass with divorce papers. Now, she's been kicked out of her house she used to brag about and has moved into a sh1thole apartment on the fail side of town, has to go back to work after being unemployed for 6+ years ("retired" on her FB page....lol), has to sell her Volvo convertible because she can't keep up the payments, and, being a ghastly scab at 44, has zero chance of ever acquiring a worthy mate because she lives in BFE lower Alabama.

      Ha ha ha ha ha...Nan. You f*king loser.

      I was really hoping he was going to say New Jersey, because the description sounds *just* like the worst woman I've ever met in my life. Only instead of "retired" she runs an illegal daycare out of her house.

      Had a meeting with our financial planners and it turns out I could have retired 10 years ago.

      I guess that's a success.

      I think you're looking for the rant thread.

      Driving home from work i see some douche weaving in and out of traffic and of course, nearly clips my rear bumper and then cuts across my lane in front of me. I also notice this is the first Romney bumper sticker i have seen since the race began. 5 minutes later i see the same douche on the side of the highway with a state trooper behind him.

      I was filling out some forms tonight and there was a question on family income. I had to think for a second, and then realized that with my wife's new job....it ****ing doubled. There will be a extra number before that comma too. Great Success!


      I'm buying a new pair of shoes, just as soon as those first paychecks come rolling in.

      My wife is awesome. Her dad's side of the family is having dinner tonight at this awful Italian place tonight. I was supposed to be out of town this weekend so didn't really commit that dinner to memory. Once I knew I'd be here over the weekend I sort of planned out Thursday night through the weekend thinking I had Friday free.

      She told me to skip the dinner because I "had to work late." She doesn't want to go to the dinner and sees no reason for me to suffer through it. Hard to believe a 9.5 month pregnant red-head can be that logical!

      Now here's hoping karma doesn't catch up with me and force me to work late tonight.

      First kid I assume? I have heard those can run long. My wife's at 8 months today w/ our first, and is also ready. I don't have the heart to tell her it could be another six weeks...

      Yep, number 1. If it doesn't progress naturally in the next few days, she has scheduled the induction for Wed. As of this Wed, some progress has happened, so it could be any day.

      Good luck to you and your wife.

      Mortgage broker gave the green light for us to start shopping around. In a few months, no more $1600/mo for a 700 sq. ft., 1 bedroom ****ty apartment.

      Just going through some old gift cards and found two that are over a year old and I had forgotten about - one for Dick's Sporting Goods and one generic Visa debit card. Each has $25.00 still available, which is perfect timing as my son needs a new tennis racquet.

      $50!! w00t

      So, I have survived a full week of training, work, more work, classes, changes at work, and am now kicking back say a minor league baseball game with a bunch of minor league hockey fans and players, having more fun than I would at a major league game. Nice Friday evening.

      Completed all 3 planned gym sessions this week. Got my oil changed, car cleaned a bit. Now I'm cleaning my apartment and have a date of sorts (hot coworker...but she has a bf) at 11. Excellent weekend kickoff. Got a solid plan for some good jeepin' sessions and a few more dates this weekend. You can call me Feels Goodman.

      Forgot to post that I did my first 5k this past Saturday. Made it under the time I wanted, but no where near my personal best as ~65% of it was uphill.

      Gotta keep training
